How To Manage Department of Veterans Affairs Disabled Veterans Benefits

Appeals of Denied Claims

You have the right to appeal any benefits decision made by the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA). The VA appeals process is set in law and is different from other judicial appeals processes.

Ho Ho Ho boys & girls...Your VA says, "Happy Holidays!"

Roanoke VA office cited again for mishandling veterans' claims

Auditors found the appeals staff closed case files by claiming veterans with multiple

appeals withdrew some of their claims when they had not. Staff then merged all of a veteran’s

claims into the oldest case file, which made it more difficult to process each issue, but boosted

the Roanoke office’s clearance rate and placed appeals managers in line for bonuses.

Veterans Affairs Asking Veterans to Return Benefit ‘Overpayments’

The debt management center began to garnish his disability check --

all $1,100 of it -- to pay back what the VA said it overpaid him dating to 2006.

The sudden stop in disability benefits hit Daniel's budget hard.

What Every Veteran Needs to Know About Medical Records​​

This holiday season, in your spare time, do a little VA benefits reading.

You'll be glad you did.

When we begin to file a claim for disability benefits, we usually naively believe that if we explain a little about why we're filing, the VA or maybe some heroic "VA Rep" will take up any slack and do their best to help us.

That doesn't often happen. It's up to you to know what you're doing when you file the claim. Yes, that's right, much of what you'll find here is difficult to read and comprehend. But if you want to prevail, you may as well get started.

Getting your claim done right the first time can save you years of headaches down the road.

Veterans Legal Help Navigator provided by Stateside Legal.
Welcome to the Veterans Legal Help Navigator. This online tool helps veterans' caseworkers and advocates across the country find the right fit legal help for veterans. The Navigator will ask you a series of questions about the veteran's income, household size, location and legal issue. Using this information, it will match you with the right fit legal help for the veteran. The Navigator will also suggest resources to learn about the veteran’s legal issue and self-help materials for the veteran.
The Veterans Legal Help Navigator helps caseworkers and advocates find legal help only. It will not match you with social services or other non-legal agencies.

The Schedule For Rating Disabilities

This is one of the first pieces of information you must be familiar with as you file a claim or an appeal of a denied claim. The Schedule describes in great detail how any disease or injury is viewed by the VA and precisely what symptoms it will require to reach a given level of compensation. 

VBA's "Bible", the  M21-1MR

The M21-1MR is possibly the most confusing set of disjointed documents you'll encounter at your VA. Cross references to Title 38 (and others) abound and the document is divided over different VBA web sites and loaded with obtuse bureaucratic verbiage that is open to personal interpretation. (It's almost as if they make it this difficult by design, to confuse you as you pursue your claim.) Nevertheless, you'll be well advised to study it until you can make some sense of the rules that apply to your situation. If you're reading the same rules as the raters are reading and you're applying the rules to your claim, you'll be the winner!

Title 38 (Two Links)

U.S. Code: Title 38 - VETERANS’ BENEFITS (Cornell)

Title 38 is the granddaddy of all the rules and regulations governing VA. Put on a pot of coffee and dive right in.
